There seems to be some confusion in the document the way Matt at PA reads it but never the less he made some changes to Indigo and gave me an advance copy and the EZeye/EZIO6I is now working in Broadcast Status Change mode. Now that I have it working I tried to manually link the digital & analog inputs I’m using but I’m having a problem.

If I first link input #1 only then you can see from the log that (button 1) one effects both inputs #1 & #5 ( I’m covering the EZeye to simulate dark) both #1 & #5 go to 0. If I then link #5 as well, there is no status change when I cover the EZeye (dark) so linking input #5 stops the automatic sending of the input status.

If select the Get Input/Output Status in Indigo it will update the Inputs. Which puts me back where I was originally except now there is no automatic updating with linking, before there was no automatic updating with Broadcast Status Change.

I sent this info to Matt and he replied;

I’m afraid this one might be a question for SimpleHomeNet. As shown in your Event Log Indigo is setting the broadcast input/output bit flag (4*) multiple times (it never clears it):

PowerLinc Linking – . updating: configuration settings 40

Sent INSTEON “EZIO6I” write configuration flags (received: 40)

Doing the manual linking process shouldn’t clear the broadcast flag in the EZIO. Try doing a Re-Sync or Define and Sync of the module. That should not affect links you created and will force Indigo to send the command to set the broadcast flag again, just in case it got cleared.

Personally, I wouldn’t bother with the manual linking at all — I would just use the broadcasting. Although SimpleHomeNet is correct in that the broadcasting isn’t ACK’d, the broadcast command is sent out with the maximum hop/repeat count for an INSTEON message so it will be re-broadcasted multiple times by the entire INSTEON mesh network. Presuming you don’t have any egregious signal problems, it is very likely that Indigo will get the message.

This is the Event Log when I was trying the manual linking. Matt’s response is based on this log.

Thanks! I think we are getting closer.
